Quakers and Coffee

A few weeks ago I decided to create a few new names for some of my favorite coffee drinks just for fun.  I work at Fuller’s Bookstore, and attached is a really great coffee shop ingenuously named “Coffee by the Books.”  What this means for me is a steady flow of really good coffee and espresso and I’ve even learned how to steam milk and pull my own shots!

Here are some of the drinks I came re-named (I wish I had some tasty pictures to go with) and a little description/sales pitch I made follows right below.

The John Woolman (Cafe Au Lait)
Steamed Milk + coffee = The John Woolman

Warm, Tasty, Frothy Milk with your favorite cup of coffee makes for a soothing drink. It’s perfect when you’re in the mood for something quiet, mild and warm. Great for raining days!

Oh and I like to put a little cinnamon on the top!

The William Penn (Americano)

1 shot of espresso and hot water = the William Penn

Perfectly roasted espresso beans mixed in with a little hot water to grieve you a purist tasting cup of Joe. The classic American and the classic American drink all mashed up in one classic cup.

The Quaker (My Own Little Mix)

3 shots of espresso + steamed milk = the Quaker

3 shots of perfectly roasted espresso beans and warm, tasty, frothy milk.Finals are coming up – need I say more?

I think the intial idea came from a chat Simon and I had a long while back over what kinds of names we’d use for Quaker beers.  But that will have to be another post.
